The Second Coming: Shantala Palat’s Quirky Experiments with Ink

The Second Coming: Shantala Palat’s Quirky Experiments with Ink

Ink is a fun medium to work with. I remember when our class lectures would become a bit too tedious, I’d slyly reach out for my pen and start ‘inking’ the last few pages of my notebook—these were ubiquitously known as ‘rough’ sheets. It can be rather addictive— an artist’s tryst with ink, as Shantala Palat might tell you. Doodling casually on a rough sheet of paper is not as elaborate an affair, as planning ... Read More »

Moments Of Mystical Ecstasy: In Conversation With Devendra Shukla

‘Divine ecstasy’ isn’t just for the Gods. Smaller beings on this planet can enjoy a slice of heaven during the course of life itself. In search of some solace and mysticism, I made a little trip to Triveni Kala Sangam sometime back, to admire painter Devendra Shukla’s artworks. Triveni Kala Sangam opened its calm, welcoming doors and I walked straight into Mr.Shukla’s artistic abode. Colors, strokes, and murmurs… Murmurs of little stories to be told; my eyes quickly took ... Read More »

Conversation with artist Amol K Patil

Conversation with artist Amol K Patil

Phule Museum is one of the eight locations where ‘Habit-co-Habit’, the third edition of the Pune Biennale, is taking place and artist Amol K Patil’s work is the first I encounter.

I take the liberty to call the aforementioned as art because of one simple principle. The central principle, around which all art revolves, ... Read More »
